Sungai Congkak is a popular recreational forest in the Hulu Langat district of Selangor state.
It is also known as Chongkak Park and Resort and is managed by Tourism Selangor.
Activities and facilities here include camping, picnicking, BBQs and bathing in the clear cool water of natural river pools and rapids amid the tall tropical rainforest trees.
See this short video clip to get an idea of what to expect:
The park attracts a large number of mostly local visitors at weekends but as it is a spacious park extending over 6 zones it does not feel crowded.
Chalets are also available for overnight stays.
Here are the 2018 chalet prices (all prices below exclude 6% GST):
Chalets 1-6 (Top Left Photo).
Sleep 4 people. 2 single beds.
Weekdays RM80. Weekends/Peak Periods RM100.
Chalets 9-10 (Top Right Photo).

The chalets look fairly basic and spartan with no air conditioning (more like camping indoors). As at October 2017 the chalets were closed for renovation after complaints from paying guests that the chalets were in poor condition. At the time of my visit they were building two smart new chalets (bottom left photo) which should be finished by now.
Open Field with Astaka. Rm400 per day.
Campsite. RM10 per night per tent. Tent hire is RM15 - RM20 depending on size.
There is also a seminar room and an open hall available for rent.
While exploring the forest you'll be needing some great gear. Take a look at the website of Globo Surf for a selection of the best gear available on today's market.
